I don't think I described the feeling well enough, Its a lot more like pain then it is like having an arm fall asleep. It makes me feel like I damaged my hearing, which makes no sense, because I can just wear them with no sound playing and it does this. I don't know if its because of a huge difference in pressure or what... I also am wondering if I can even wear deep insertion IEMs, my ears don't feel like they would let the IEMs go in that far, like my ears are blocked off past that point. And I'm not new to IEMs, either. While, yes, the M9s were my first pair, I've had them for over a year now, and  I'm easily used to the feeling. I think it has something more to with the insertion and removal process of the IEMs, messing with my eardrums because of pressure. Maybe I just don't know how to wear IEMs. Though the way I maximize pressure increases isolation a ton, almost doubles it I'd say. Even at normal pressures, these things still cause pain, though.

 

The reason I want new earbuds is because I lost one of the tips to the E9, and those were the only tips that could isolate even moderately without adding tons of pressure. Without those, I have to use the other tips in very unconvential, painful manners, and those isolate even less then the stock tips. I don't know whether the M9s are just painful to my ears, or my search for overly powerful isolation is the one killing my ears.

 

Maybe I should just go with an Etymotic, instead. I don't know if the VC02 will isolate enough that I will not end up forcing it to isolate through bad-for-the-ear insertion.

I'm quite sure that vc02's (ety like isolation depends on your tips) can give you great isolation with good comfort. Just choose the right tips, you'll have a good number of tips you can choose from. Deep insertion is also very comfortable with the vc02's I'm not having any problems at all and I'm very happy with its isolation. :)

I don't have any small tips, sadly, so I can't check for this.

Also, the pain does seem the be caused by the giant decrease in pressure when I take them out. it really pulls on the ear drums. Anyway to not have that happen?

 

Edit: Do the VC02s come with small tips? That would probably make it so I can actually use them... Maybe my ear canals are thinner then most peoples?

VC02's comes with the smallest tips I've seen in an iem package haha maybe that would fit you.

Mine did but VSonic have changed their accessory sets in the past without notice. You may want to confirm with the listing or even the seller, depending on where you are buying them.

The only Heir set I have is the 8.A , which I do plan to add a full review for.

"...but still has some of the slightly hot character that all higher-end VSonic dynamics seem to share."

What does this mean? I don't think I've ever heard of a "hot" sounding treble, unless it means harsh and aggressive.

How about JH13pro? Will you add a full review too?

There's one or more treble features that fall within the "potential for sibilance" range.

Yes, I will. That one's a little more difficult since I'll have to rescale the sound score.

Reading between the lines, JH13 Pro is probably going to get a 10 out of 10 from you. ;-)

are the Sony hybrids compatible with the MEElec A161P?

Joker, you really don't have to rescale your score table. Personally, i just want to see the scores of IEMs or CIEMs in the similar price range. For example, if you really think JH13Pro is better than Miracle a bit, you can straightly score JH13Pro as 10.5 instead of 10.5/10. So It doesn't matter whether the score is over denominator 10 anymore. IMO, it's clearer to show how much those high end CIEM/IEMs better than the lower end 

 

Another question on CIEMs. What are the differences between Miracle and NT6? Which one you love better?

Oh, that doesn't really bother me, so that is fine! I can't wait to get these.

Sooooo.....my UE5 Pro's have finally failed me for the last time!  The shell on the right bud broke, when I tried to plug in the cable the fine wire (that WAS protected by the shell) snapped.  So I'm looking for a replacement and came across this excellent thread!  I was thinking ER 4P or a Westone 4 but now I'm looking at the ER HR5 and the Rockit R50 as a cheaper alternative.  Being a longtime audiophile, I'll probably wind up with one of the more expensive IEM's but I just wanted to thank you for this thread, it's exactly what I hoped I'd find here!

Oooo scandalous. Do you ever feel that by rescaling it, you squeeze yourself a bit at the top, ie making things seem closer than they are?
